The Wellington Town Hall was an interesting building but its architectural beauty was lost by the many more modern buildings close by. Worth a visit.

Wellington is a great place to walk around. There are so many beautiful buldings to look at and there are plenty of photo opportunities if you are interested.

The Town Hall is built in Roman style along with a huge clock tower. Wellington Town Hall is closed for three years from 2013 for earthquake strengthening so ensure if its opened before you plan your visit there.
